Beautiful Burnie

Have to run over to the studio to start class prep but here I am in Tasmania! The tide went out so I was able to walk a bit on the sand this morning.
Birds do that all the time.
Can you believe this paper studio?? Creative Paper Burnie in the Makers Workshop (I don't know where the apostrophe goes in Makers...).
That glass area is for drying paper.
That little cube is where I'm staying. To the right is the paper studio! Wonderfully convenient. The ocean is just beyond, where the boardwalk is, and town is a short walk from there.
The regional airline is so nice to remind its workers to bend their knees.
The sinks will be vats for us. A little worried that they are too deep but better that than too shallow.
The vat room, again...
Burnie has a long history of papermaking, resulting in all of these huge rolls.
It looks smaller here due to my angle but it's really big. There's Lyndal, showing me the roll in the gallery after she picked us up from the airport.
Time to start class! We will have a view of the water. The sun has come out after a bunch of rain and storm when I first arrived. So happy to be here.
